Hi
To reset your router hold down the reset button in the back or bottom. hold it down for 30seconds and the router is reset to factory defaults, if you need anything else use the add a comment button. Thanks

You can always reset the router by the reset button and start over and put new wireless passwords out. Its always a good idea to change your wireless passwords from time to time.

    you can log into your router. You have to be hard wired into the router. Ethernet cable. once you are hard wired connected type 192.168.1.1 in your address bar and you will get a log in screen. Hopefully you saved your login but if there isn't, just push ok and it will take you into the router screen if you never set up a user name and password, from there you push the wireless tab and look up the password. If you can't remember your log in. you may just need to reset the router by the reset button and set everything up again.

Changed password now can"t access router


Your laptop still insists on using the old password that's why it can't connect. Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks. Select your router's SSID. Right click on it and change Properties > Security > Show characters. The old password that you forgot should appear. You may then change it to the latest one.

You may also click on the wifi signal icon on the lower right corner of your Taskbar, right click on the router's SSID, select Properties > Security > Show characters to reveal the old password you forgot and change it to the latest one.

I dont know the code forgot the code for other computers to get conecct like a ipone for the computer


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you forgot the code or the Network Key (Passphrase) we can access the Wireless Settings Page of the router to obtain the information needed to connect your iphone.

To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.

Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Network Key is case sensitive.

Im trying to get online on my xbox and i forgot my password to my router


If you have a WEP key or something, get on your computer and download this, then run it. It will tell you the key of all networks in range.

Forgot the password


Hi brendflores,

Welcome to Fixya. Im not quite sure what password you're referring to if ti's the router password or the Network Password or Network Key. Listed below are the steps on how to obtain the Network Password and the Router Password.

For you to get you Security Code or Network Key you need to access your router.To access your router just open a Browser then type 192.168.2.1, password is blank. Click on the Security under Wireless. You can change the security type of your router to WPA, WEP or you can also Disable the security. Under that you can see the Security Code or Network Key. You can also Personalize the Passphrase or Network Key so that you can easily remember it.

You can also reset the router to its factory state but you need to keep in mind that all settings will be back to its default settings. To reset the router press and hold the small reset button at the back of the router using a Pen or a Paper Clip for 15-30 seconds.


If you think this is helpful rate me and don't forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

How do i change the find out the password when i lost my details an hav no idea how to change it


Hi Friend,

If you want to change the network password then please follow the steps:

Type 192.168.0.1 in the address bar of the web browser and hit enter. Type admin in Username and password in Password and hit enter.

On the router setup page click Wireless Settings and in the security options select either WEP or WPA-PSK and set the shared key as the password for your network.

If you forgot the router login password then you have to reset the router and start the procedure once again as mentioned above.
